We are on a mission to build resilience in our community by nurturing a new generation of social justice advocates!

Building community capacity to combat hate and racism requires the collaboration of young leaders passionate about racial equity to help sustain the anti-racism movement.

“Our future rests in the hands of the next generation. We owe it to them to ensure that they are ready.” – Amy Go, CCNC-SJ President

Our Social Justice Advocacy Training & Mentorship program facilitates community resilience and advances sustainable actions through training, mentoring, and connecting like-minded individuals with prominent leaders in law, education, and creatives to confront and tackle hate and racism.

Young advocates will be immersed in an active multidisciplinary working environment guided by our mentors and project goals to build their knowledge, apply their skills, and collaborate with others.
